Could the establishment of extensive teacher-evaluation practices prove counterproductive if effective school climates are not created and maintained? This paper attempts to answer this general question by investigating two more specific questions: (1) Is there an inherent conflict between the activities associated with teacher evaluation and those elements typically associated with good workplace climate? and (2) What activities associated with evaluations and what elements of good climate lead...
